There’s a new Edición Regional release in Mexico—and it’s not an Edmundo Dantes.
Yesterday, the Punch Duke arrived in Mexico. The newest Edición Regional for the country is a 5 1/2 (140mm) x 54 robusto extra. It’s the fourth Edición Regional release for the country, though the three prior had all been Edmundo Dantes, a special brand that has only been offered in Mexico.
Pricing is set at MXN 550 per cigar, about $28.75 at current exchange rates. Production is limited to 6,000 boxes of 10 cigars.
While the cigars might have arrived in Mexico, they aren’t at retailers. Manolo Santiago of Importadora y Exportadora de Puros y Tabacos, S.A. DE C.V., the Mexican distributor for Habanos S.A., told halfwheel the cigars will go on sale March 27, 2019.
The Punch Dukes is part of the 2018 class of Edición Regionals.
